1. It’s so funny how one run can give or take confidence. Last Saturday’s 14 left me worried I’d struggle all the way to Boston. This Tuesday’s eight with my friends was my best since returning and left me feeling like I could PR Boston. The truth, I am sure, is in between.
2. I decided I want to gain a little leg turnover back and so am doing one session per week of tempo on the AlterG for three or four weeks. Yesterday I did three miles of tempo on it and feel good today. Mentally, I feel like it’s cheating!

4. As I enter legit marathon miles this weekend, I’m also putting my monk robes back on. Time to really buckle down with early bedtimes, fewer glasses of wine, and really dedicated eating. Tradeoffs? Yes. Worth it? YES!
5. Go Ravens!
